David’s relational approach to ministry helps people connect the stories of their lives to the larger story of God's work in the world. For more than two decades, David has enjoyed walking alongside teenagers, college students, and adults on the journey of faith. His doctoral work in Christian Leadership focuses on the ways that the traditions and practices of the earliest Christians can help shape and form future expressions of the church.

David's approach to coaching and consulting grows out of that experience and perspective. He helped to begin Pinnacle’s Student Ministry division and has worked to expand his competency to help churches, clergy, and lay leaders discover their gifts, think theologically, and develop sustainable ministries. Now David coordinates Pinnacle's consulting work. David is married to Sarah. They have three children and currently reside in Rock Hill, South Carolina.
